Additional Learning Needs


 Additional Learning Needs


This policy outlines the teaching and management of ALN at Victoria Primary School. The policy has been drawn up to reflect our whole school approach to ALN and has been discussed with staff and has the agreement of the Governing Body. The implementation of this policy is the responsibility of all practitioners in the school learning community, supported in partnership with parents. We are committed to providing a teaching environment conducive to learning. Each child is valued respected and challenged regardless of ability, race, gender, religion, social background, culture or disability.
The school’s aims in ALN are to:
  • To ensure that all pupils have access to a broad and balanced curriculum
  • To provide a differentiated curriculum appropriate to the individual’s needs and ability.
  • To ensure the identification of all pupils requiring ALN provision as early as possible in their  school career/ as soon as there is an identified need.
  • To ensure that ALN pupils take as full a part as possible in all school activities
  • To ensure that parents of ALN pupils are kept fully informed of their child’s progress and attainment
  • To ensure that  pupils are involved, where practicable, in decisions affecting their future provision
  • To develop learners’ self-esteem, self-worth and a sense of personal responsibility.
  • To prepare learners for the choices and opportunities of lifelong learning.
  • To work with other schools to share good practice in order to improve this policy.
  • To develop a strong partnership with parents to help enable children and young people with  ALN to achieve their potential.
